A study has found that there is no difference between doing exercise in one go just on the weekend or scheduling it throughout the week.

The research, titled "Association of the 'weekend warrior' and other leisure-time physical activity patterns with all-cause and cause-specific mortality", published in the Jama Internal Medicine journal, suggests that it does not matter whether a person is a "weekend warrior" or regularly active.

If an individual gets 150 minutes of decent exercise weekly, such as swim, cycling, or even brisk walking, there is no need to have a strict workout schedule.

The total amount of active minutes matters more than when the exercise takes place, suggests the research.

Researchers believe that the findings of the study could prove very beneficial for people who do not get the time to exercise daily.
